For the last 20 years, there have been a few constants in the world. Death, taxes, and ICP’s Gathering Of The Juggalos happening on an annual basis. The festival brings together some surprisingly notable musical talent (seriously, everyone from Attila to God Forbid to Esham has played in years past), and this year’s lineup was being prepared. That all changed when the coronavirus attacked, and as it’s affected the music and entertainment industries and more or less shut down live events, the Gathering is unfortunately no exception. However, the Juggalos are clearly more woke than some state governments.
Smartly, the duo had this to say about their first-ever cancellation of the Gathering…
“For 20 consecutive years, the Gathering of the Juggalos has been the biggest family reunion on the planet, generating untold levels of freshness for thousands and thousands of attending Juggalos from all walks of life, all around the world,” the duo said in a tweet. “With the global pandemic that is now affecting us all, we are dedicated first and foremost to the safety and health of our family. That said, at this juncture, it is with a heavy heart we announce that due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have no choice but to postpone the Gathering until next year.”

If you want to know exactly what you’re missing at this year’s canceled Gathering, watch a recap of last year’s below. While the event won’t be happening this year, provided this goes away soon, it’ll be happening next year for sure. Needless to say, if you’ve ever been, it’s a pretty wild time.
